I could do with the temporary loan of a cylinder head to set up the Weber 40DCOE conversion. Condition unimportant.2nd August 2016 at 10:59 pm #13539KaptainkwakKeymaster
I have spare heads and a couple of questions.
1) Might the head get damaged?
2) What about postage? I recently sent a head to another member at it cost £12. That would be £24 total if and when returned.

I appreciate your offer, many thanx.
Absolutely NO damage to the head. It just has to act as jig to measure for the tubes and spacing.
Why not use my own ? Well the engine is now assembled and the guy has to have the head at his workplace and can’t take a complete engine in ! The other reason is that he is often called away to mainland Europe [ he’s a plant engineer ]at a moment’s notice and would want to leave the head in his locker until he gets back to it. I guess what I’m saying is that once he has it I’m reliant on his timescale. That said – he doesn’t mess around !
I have a good deal for carriage via Hermes. I send stuff out all the time [e-bay sales ] and they are pretty good.
If you send it out from your end [ try Interparcel for best Hermes quote ], I’ll reimburse your costs for packaging, carriage etc. and then return it via my carriers.
I had several peeps interested in the conversion when I mentioned it way back – so I will get him to make drawings – maybe even cut up several sets of tubes – J.I.C.
I already have 3 sets of flanges cut [ the only viable way ], so there are enough to make 2 more anyway.
BTW – your continued kind words and good wishes re: my health issue are appreciated. As long as I remain at stage 3 [ of 5 ]we’re good to go.4th August 2016 at 9:29 am #13541

KK – problems sending PM again.
Re: cylinder head loan. Do you want me to pay a deposit etc. against safe return ?
I spoke to my fabricator pal at the weekend and he assures me there’s no way the head could be damaged in this process.17th August 2016 at 7:03 am #13543
KK …………. pm ‘ing issues again.
Tried to call you on your landline the past couple of days.
Your PM message with your mobile disappeared after I opened it before I could write the number down !
Can you let me have it again please so I can arrange payment for carriage
